Brilliant Women: Pioneers of Science and Technology Hardback

Illustrated by Rita Petruccioli

Part of the Brilliant Women series



In Pioneers of Science and Technology you'll say hello to Hypatia, an ancient Greek mathematician and astronomer.

You'll learn about Lise Meitner, the heroic Jewish physicist who escaped the Nazis.

You'll join Jane Goodall who lived in the jungle studying apes.

These women are just a few of the many who followed their passion for science and technology, and weren't put off by people telling them they couldn't or shouldn't. And along the way they discovered radiation, wrote the first computer program, expanded our knowledge of the universe and flew into space. Curious, provocative, engaging, brave, and funny - women who change the world are diverse, intriguing and brilliant.

Created by an all-women team and filled with wonderful illustrations, and engaging activities that will nurture your own varied skills, the Brilliant Women series compiles the stories of inspiring women from every field.

Retelling their triumphs and adversities, this beautiful series of four books reveals and celebrates the women who have shaped the world we live in now.

Perfect reading for the next generation of brilliant girls and boys.

Suitable for readers aged 9 and up.
